Recommend me a controller

#1priyanshbalyanPosted 10/8/2013 2:53:50 AM
I want a good game controller. Xbox 360 and ps3 controllers are also options. I don't know if the ps4 or xbox one controllers support pc. Also the price must be low. Any suggestions ?

the preferred controller depends on the individual

The 360 controller is the most supported controller. Just get that one. Wired.

Cant really recommend a controller as it truly is down for you to try them and see, but I can say that the Xbox One and PS4 controllers will work on PC.

Currently I use a PS3 controller with a Bluetooth adapter as the Xbox 360 controller hurts my hands after long use. But if i know i'm only going on for a short lazy game, I'll just pick up the 360 as it doesn't require additional software.

Apparently the ps4 controller will actually be supported for pc on release so maybe look into that.

I personally use a ps3 controller and motionjoy to get it to work with steam

The 360 controller is supported by virtually every multi-platform game, complete with the correct button prompts and everything, and requires no driver installation or button mapping. It's plug and play, and ergonomically speaking, is generally preferable to the PS3 controller. But that's pretty subjective.

So is my DS3 controller. You just got to have the right drivers for it.

Do you have a reading disability or maybe its a comprehension issue? It does not have the bolded above. I too have my DS3 controller setup with SCPserver but that is not what 'plug and play' means. Nor do you get the proper prompts in games.
